    The Other Season

    NO LONGER TRUE
    'Round The Calendar
    apace with growth
    WALLPAPER:  UP ON THE ROOF
    -------
    ..Not too long ago we would say there were just two seasons in town: "winter and construction."
    .. Over the last ten or twelve years the pace of construction has accelerated to a frenzy trying to keep up with demand of visitation.
    .. Old buildings are being renovated into rental and motel properties. New buildings are popping up on the previously scenic vacant lots = the trees in town are vanishing.
    .. Now we have a labor shortage for the service sector. Partly aggravated by the poor wage scale and lack of adequate housing.
    .. Of course the plutocrats and oligarchs could care less as long as the visitors spend money, accept shoddy service, and need only be served once.

    .. Reminds us of a song:
    ..

    When this old world starts getting me down
    And people are just too much for me to face
    I climb way up to the top of the stairs
    And all my cares just drift right into space
    On the roof, it's peaceful as can be
    And there the world below can't bother me
    Let me tell you now
    When I come home feelin' tired and beat
    I go up where the air is fresh and sweet (up on the roof)
    I get away from the hustling crowd
    And all that rat-race noise down in the street (up on the roof)
    On the roof, the only place I know
    Where you just have to wish to make it so
    Let's go up on the roof (up on the roof)
    At night the stars put on a show for free
    And, darling, you can share it all with me
    I keep a-tellin' you
    Right smack dab in the middle of town
    I've found a paradise that's trouble proof (up on the roof)
    And if this world starts getting you down
    There's room enough for two
    Up on the roof (up on the roof)
    Up on the roo-oo-oof (up on the roof)
    Oh, come on, baby (up on the roof)
    Oh, come on, honey (up on the roof)
    Everything is all right (up on the roof)
    Songwriters: Carole King / Gerry Goffin

    .. Can we really be that old? Do you really need to be from New York, NY to understand it all?
    .. We'll roll over and remonstrate with the universe. We'll also recuperate from a touch of pneumonia and the flu.
